Leaving social media

I’ve been telling myself that I’m going to move away from Facebook in the New Year, and that this site will be a means of me staying on-line  without having to hand over more control of my personal information.

I want to have ownership of what I publish – and by having my own site I will have complete control. I don’t think anyone really cares where I am, or what I’m doing – and I don’t really have any interest in telling anyone. Recent updates to social media sites are making it impossible to not publish that data.

I do sometimes find interesting things on the web that I want to share or discuss, and by having this site I’ll be able to do that, without interference from Zuckerberg and co.
